Okay no problem. It's the Charlottetown feed I'm more interested in anyway. Thanks for the reply. DJ

Sure DJ I can do that for tonight.  I am working a 12 hour shift from 8 PM to 8 AM local so the scanner will be left scanning the list of high level frequencies for this evening and overnight.  I can just set up a 2nd bank of frequencies on the scanner and they will be there to select.  I can leave
the scanner like that until Dave can do his test covering the Boston ACC
area.  I will leave it scanning the high level traffic until I hear further.

OK the scanner is now up and running high level only.  The only frequency I did not enter was 126.325 as this gave me a steady carrier on the scanner.  Enjoy the NAT traffic.

Charlotettown is just on the reception edge of Daves radio in Boston. If Dave can accomodate it, it would be good if he could retune his Boston Center radio to just 134.950, 133.450, 118.825, 128.750, 127.825 for tonight only. Then we would have continuous coverage of about a 550 nautical mile coridor right along the route of the majority of NAT traffic tonight.

Those frequencies are now active on /zbw_test until further notice.

GDM36 and CON37 (the two sectors for which I can almost always pick up the Center controller) are, and have been, available on:

Thanks Dave. Reception on both the Charlotettown radio and Dave's Boston Center radio are very good. The locations complement each other perfectly as you can hear aircraft take the handoff between Boston (134.950/133.450) and Moncton (127.125/132.700/135.200) on both radios. Just as you are about to lose them on one you start to pick them them up on the other. Both radios are pulling in signals from a distance of up to around 210 nautical miles easily. The only snag is the Boston radio hangs up on 134.950 for a few seconds after each transmission, sounds like slight interference with the squelch set to low. Combined with the radio located at Sydney you can follow some JFK arrivals from the Gander/Moncton FIR border right to the point were they get cleared to FL240 at TRAIT and handed off Boston on 135.800, a distance of around 700 nautical miles. To add to the test, I think it's Jason that runs the Bridegport radio, if he happens to read this and can retune his radio to 135.800, 128.300, and 134.000 only, you would have complete coverage of all sectors used by JFK arrivals/departures all the way from the gate to the Gander FIR boundary (on centeral and southern NAT routes) heading to/from Europe, including receipt of the Oceanic Clearance eastbound (which you can hear on the Sydney radio).

Good afternoon Dave and all,

Just like DJ I like to listen to the Boston center feed very much, especially to catch the traffic heading to Europe and going Oceanic.

If it's not too much trouble Dave, could you please add 125.925 into the feed aswell. This is the New York center
frequency that handles Oceanic clearances and such. Thanks for your efforts Dave, they are much appreciated !!

Best wishes from the Netherlands,


René.

>> I could only imagine the pure horror of trying to deceminate the action <<

I agree, the way the Boston Center radio is set up with so many frequencies makes no sense to me either, it might as well have 500 selected, the result is the same. Dave said earlier he is using it for some sort of a test ? Anyway, if people want to listen to more frequencies, we need more radios. Simply loading up one radio with everyones requests makes no sense. So, I've donated enough money for the purchase of another radio that Dave kindly said he would set up at his Boston location for me. Once it's up and running my plan is to have it dedicated to the 4 northeast high sectors ONLY. This should provide good coverage of the North Atlantic traffic, and won't be too saturated that you will still be able to follow what is going on. I'd like to listen to the New York sector on 125.925 as well, so I'll add it in as a test and see how it works, but I suspect it will be too much when it's busy. Plus most of this sector is out of range from Boston anyway. This would be better for a radio located in the New York area on Long Island. But we'll see how it goes ? DJ

DJ...the radio should be here any day now and we'll get the feed going.

And to those of you whose goal is to try and follow every flight from origin to destination, pitch in and help fund what interests you.  As for me, I like to listen to a variety of traffic; not too many frequencies, not too few.  If I miss a couple of transmissions, well, the world won't end.  smiley  Being familiar with the airspace, I am a lot less likely to be confused than most folks.

I was wondering, did you ever put 125.925 in the radio and how did it work out ?? Actually you will get some good traffic on this frequency
from the Boston area, as some aircraft on this frequency close out over ACK to Dovey and then go Oceanic.

Not yet. Actually if Dave is reading this, can you please take out 118.825 and replace it with 125.925, and we'll see what we can get. Thanks.
